21st Century Learning Director's Message

Dr. Brigitte Garth-Young

It’s my pleasure with dignity, honor and respect to salute the service of our most prestigious School Board Members, of Dolton East School District #149, in observation of the state-wide School Board Appreciation Day!  Our premise — We Believe In….Excellence Humanization, and Pride—is an expression that’s indicative of our school board speaking out for the emergence of quality 21st Century Public Education! Our school board leaders, President Darlene Gray Everett, Vice President Lolita Crisler-Liggons, Secretary Bertha Jolly, Member Pamela Eldridge, Member Rayya Ghani, Member Kimberly Knight-Anderson, and Member Wilbur Tillman, consistently rise to the occasion in their challenging duties with extraordinary devotion.

Our dedicated School District #149 board members share a common goal to “Educate the Whole Child One Step at a Time”.  With deep care and compassion our board members put in quality time focusing on the well-being of each student in our school community. They’re engaged in attending school board meetings, extracurricular activities, professional development sessions, and volunteering at school community events, just to name a few. Continually advocating for children, they work diligently alongside parents and community members setting policy and creating the vision to help our students experience educational success.

The Dolton East School District #149 Board reflects the hard work of others, serving on school boards nation-wide, who advocate and shape the direction of 21st Century Learning.  Their concerted efforts are the key to establish policies that will prepare our children to become future leaders. The entire district benefits from their awareness in providing 21st Century learning opportunities in our schools which include, but are not limited to the following:

  • On-line assessments to improve instruction and student achievement;
  • A computer-based college/career readiness curriculum;
  • One-to-one technology program using the Schoology learning management system and other educational learning programming;
  • Technology infrastructure to support wireless accessibility district-wide.

Please join me to applaud our school board members who provide enthusiastic support and caring for our students, teachers and administrators!  Let’s remember to highlight the accomplishments of OUR school board, by recognizing, appreciating, valuing and being supportive of their endeavors with sincere gratitude. 

WE BELIEVE………………..
